NFL Ravens 

Jackson leads the list of Ravens that fell short of the 53

The Baltimore Ravens cut 15 players on Saturday ahead of the 4 p.m. deadline, just as every team in the league had to do. Most of the decisions weren’t surprising as some of the players that got left off the 53 man roster heading into the regular season played a role in their getting cut.

Asa Jackson was selected in the fifth round in the 2012 NFL draft, the Ravens had been hoping that he’d be able to help their secondary which was in a transition with the departure of Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed. Many had hoped that Jackson would develop into a sold, reliable slot corner in their hybrid defense. At the worst, maybe he’d be able to contribute on special teams, specifically the return game. That wasn’t the case for Jackson as he turned the ball over several times during his tenure with the Ravens as a return man, including this preseason.

Offensive Guard Robert Myers was taken late in this year’s draft, as depth for an offensive line group for the future. The project went south as he never really found a consistent level of play through training camp and preseason. Later this week, our Owen Riese will have break down the finalized 53 man roster for the 2015-2016 Baltimore Ravens.

Here is a list of the players that were cut today:

CB Asa Jackson
OL Jah Reid
WR Jeremy Butler
OG Robert Myers
CB Cassius Vaughn
OLB Brennen Beyer
OG Kaleb Johnson
RB Terrance Magee
RB Fitzgerald Toussaint
FB Kiero Small
TE Konrad Reuland
QB Bryan Renner
S Nick Perry
DE DeAngelo Tyson
DT Micaja Reynolds
